  • 41. Swami Vivekananda wrote of Calve: 'She was born poor but by her innate talents, prodigious labour and diligence, and after wrestling against much hardship, she is now enormously rich and commands respect from kings and emperors....The rare combination of beauty, youth, talents, and "divine" voice has assigned Calve the highest place among the singers of the West. There is, indeed, no better teacher than misery and poverty. That constant fight against the dire poverty, misery, and hardship of the days of her girlhood, which has led to her present triumph over them, has brought into her life a unique sympathy and a depth of thought with a wide outlook.' "[He] truly walked with God, a noble being, a saint, a philosopher and a true friend. His influence upon my spiritual life was profound [...] my soul will bear him eternal gratitude". ---- EMMA Emma Calve came to be considered the greatest Carmen of her day and sang it at all the opera houses. She then toured the principal cities of Europe, meeting with acclaim wherever she went. A woman, who made her fame inculcating to audiences the opposite of Vivekananda's message of chastity, she nevertheless struck up a friendship with the monk and if Vivekananda encouraged her to be less promiscuous in her appearances on stage, as far as is known, she never recorded it.
